I missed the Susie Carmichael : You don’t love me shirt but I decided to do something a tad different anyhow. I decided to do Susie Carmichael from the Rugrats. She was practically the only little black girl cartoon character I looked up to and had before Proud Family and others came along. The diverse changes in animation not only defied stereotypes, but also set up a Susie Carmichael : You don’t love me shirt culture revitalization structured through white owned animation based channels. Susie and more were a symbol of culture and empowerment. As one of the few women of color at my school I want to be a role model for little women of color to embrace who they are and strive for success.
